Wonder if there were seatbelts on those buses? Oh wait, Missouri does not require them! Most ridulous thing!

My biggest fear as a school bus driver. Accidents happen. I hope it was just an unfortunate accident and not the drivers fault. I'm sure all kinds of awful comments will be made about bus drivers now. I know obnoxious, careless bus drivers. I also know that it is less than 1 percent of the drivers I know. It is a sad sad day for someone's family and for all those kids who were a part of this awful incident.

At this moment, that doesnt matter one bit! We cant go back and change what has happened, but we can learn from this accident. Maybe our state legislation will take this in mind and change the way the schools in MO transport our students by requiring them to buckle up. Regardless, criticism publicly announced is NOT necessary. Don't think I dont agree with you, because I do, I just know that as a student of the school district involved that no one will be appreciative of the your comment, regardless of how well intentioned it was.

Momof2 - There is substantial proof from years of studies that the construction of school buses creates an environment that lessens the need for seat belts. On the national level, and also in the State of Missouri, authorities charged with determining whether seat belts should be mandated on school buses must balance out the pros and cons of seatbelts on school buses. Had this been a rollover accident with students belted in, exactly how many children would have been injured or even killed) from dangling upside down until help could arrive....furthermore, in today's society, how many kids on a bus would use seatbelts to injure other students.....there are a lot of other aspects that have to be looked at, and most people who scream for seatbelts in busses have absolutely no comprehension of the concept of compartmentalization that is used in school bus construction and do not understand that compartmentalization does, in fact, minimize a need for seatbelts, whereas, in cars and trucks, compartmentalization does not exist, therefore seatbelts are necessary. Before you begin flinging accusations, you might want to study up on the safety of the school bus industry, so you actually know what you are talking about.

Does anyone see a car between the first bus and the semi? It looks like a Tahoe or something?

This is probably a case of inattentiveness in a construction zone.

From what I understand by the commentator the second school bus ran into the front school bus, pushing him over the top of a car which propelled the bus upwards, over and onto the semi!

If anyone was to be blamed it would the school bus driver that ran into the back of the first bus - weren't they paying attention or looking elsewhere and rammed into the back of that bus? If thats the case then that is pure negligence - aren't busses supposed to drive with so much distance between them in the event they must stop quickly?

The article said two people were killed - but now what two. This a most unfortunate and bizarre accident - I this day and age it is almost unacceptable that this could happen, but knowing human nature, I know it can. 50 kids injured, 2 dead. Unforgivable!
